Imagine that one day you come back home from work. You're tired. It's dark since hours, you just feel like letting the water from the shower to take away the tension of the day, letting your thoughts sink in a white nimbus made of the most absolute nothing. You turn the key in the keyhole. There's no light in your apartment. Your partner is not home, family dinner again. You wonder what time she will be back while you walk the corridor in the dark. You leave your jacket on the bed just like it weighted 100 kilos. You try to reach the light switch in the wall. There is a hand where the switch should be, it grabs your own hand.

That is what watching a picture by SalaBoli feels like.

SalaBoli's images scream. Bang. They rebel and howl against their condition. They rush against the frame where he put them. They dribble and scratch the invisible bars of their two-dimensional prison. Choke. They are furious that they let him capture them, but, above all things, they are furious at you. Your scrutiny drives them mad. You behold them, surprised and admired. You smile, raise your eyebrows, pronounce pretentious words like hiperrealism, texture treatment, chromatic aberration. Then you go on to the next photography and devour more chips. They are dying to flay you.

So don't fool yourself. If you feel a little uncomfortable while watching them, it means that they just saw you. Be careful. obe day you will come back home from work. Everything will be dark, and you will think that your partner is not home. You will step on her blood. You will enter the bedroom and leave the jacket on the bed while you reach the light switch. Somewhere on your desk, between beer cans and chips, there will be a bunch of blank, torn apart photographs. Then you will know.

SalaBoli's images have escaped.
And you know what?
They're coming for you

Imagina que vuelves un día a casa del trabajo. Estás cansado. Hace horas que ha anochecido, sólo te apetece dejar que el agua de la ducha se lleve toda la tensión del día, que tus pensamientos se sumerjan en un nimbo blanco hecho de la más absoluta nada. Giras la llave en la cerradura. No hay luz en el apartamento. Tu pareja no está, otra vez cena con la familia. Te preguntas a qué hora volverá mientras recorres el pasillo a oscuras. Dejas la chaqueta sobre la cama como si pesara cien kilos. Palpas la pared buscando la luz del dormitorio. Donde debería estar el interruptor hay una mano, que agarra la tuya con fuerza.

Eso es ver una fotografía de SalaBoli.

Las imágenes de SalaBoli gritan. Aporrean. Se rebelan entre aullidos contra su condición de prisioneras. Arremeten contra los bordes del marco donde él las ha confinado. Babean y arañan los barrotes invisibles de esas dos dimensiones. Se asfixian. Están furiosas por haberse dejado atrapar pero, sobre todo, lo están por tu culpa. Tu escrutinio las enloquece. Tú las contemplas, entre sorprendido y admirado. Sonríes, levantas las cejas, pronuncias palabras pedantes como hiperrealismo, tratamiento de las texturas, aberración cromática. Luego pasas a la siguiente fotografía mientras devoras patatas fritas. Ellas sueñan con despellejarte.

No te engañes. Si al mirarlas te sientes un poco incómodo sin razón alguna, es porque te han visto. Así que ten cuidado. Un día volverás a casa del trabajo. Será de noche, y creerás que tu pareja no está en casa. Pasarás sin darte cuenta por encima del charco de su sangre. Entrarás en el dormitorio a oscuras. Dejarás la chaqueta encima de la cama y tantearás buscando el interruptor de la luz. En algún lugar de tu escritorio, entre latas de cerveza estrujadas y envoltorios de patatas fritas, habrá un puñado de fotografías en blanco rotas en dos. Entonces lo sabrás.

Las imágenes de SalaBoli han escapado.
Y, ¿sabes qué?
Vienen a por ti.

    "My love affair for David and his art begins so long ago, before I had ever even considered being here, I had seen his work featured here for so many of us to enjoy.

    I really cannot put into words how his vision makes me feel both inside and out. Sometimes it is like a dream or a movie that I want to watch over and over smiling, laughing and crying, and living it the way he wants me to experience it.

    He is my religion, and I am forever in love with his vision.

    always and forever

    love

    Ahora lo que quiero decir es: Joder David, tienes un estilo propio, un lenguaje particular, una técnica personal y depurada, un montón de fotos hechas. TIO búscate un galerista, un mecenas, una revista. Tu obra merece salir de flickr y conocer el mundo.
    Deberíamos de darle la oportunidad al mundo de quedarse boquiabierto con tus fotos. Por que los compis del flickr ya estamos anonadados hace mucho tiempo con tu inmensa capacidad."

    "Recuerdo que hace ya bastante tiempo que me topé con la página de Deivi. Y ha habido una clara evolución desde sus principios hasta ahora. Pero en todo momento ha estado latente el estilo y la personalidad de este genio.

    Sí, sí, GENIO en mayúsculas. Su sentido de la estética es inmejorable y su capacidad de creación infinita. Me encanta tu manejo con el photoshop, cómo consigues hacer sexy y seductor el lado oscuro de la vida, cómo consigues mostrarnos que lo que a simple vista puede parecer desagradable finalmente cuando pasa por tus manos deja de serlo y pasa a convertirse en arte.

    Tienes un don, my friend. Y lo mejor de todo es que lo estás aprovechando. Sigue así, por favor.

    Por mi parte, cada vez que me pregunten por mis artistas favoritos seguiré nombrándote como miembro de honor en mi lista de esos genios que me conmueven."

    "No soy buena para estas cosas pero supongo te haces merecedor de estas---
    Salaboli: Un hacedor de fantasías, tus imágenes no hacen mas que crear un entorno paralelo que hace al espectador escapar para adentrarse en un mundo de fantasías y sentimientos, cada una de tus fotos nos llevan a otra parte, a otro entorno, despierta sentimientos intensos y profundos, buenos o malos...
    Total: Realmente admiro lo que logras trasmitir, no todos tienen esa virtud...Un abrazo fuerte..."

    "Una lastima que roza la desgracia el haber pasado un año en flickr sin haber conocido tu obra...
    Pero no seamos pesimistas, ahora ya SI que la conozco, y desde mi gran fortuna te doy las gracias....
    Grato es, tener estrellitas brillantes iluminandote El camino que se aleja mas de lo recto y lo correcto y que un dia decidiste recorrer.
    Nada, a seguir brillando para no dejar a ciegas a los demas."

    "I wish I could write more than a couple of sentences about how incredible SalaBoli's work is, but I can't. It is simply breath taking. His Photoshop creations are so elaborate they almost seem unreal. Keep it up! :o)"

    Uno de los mejores amigos que he tenido nunca y un profesional del arte, solo has de darte un paseo por aquí y observar el gran talento que tiene el mamonazo.

    Siempre será un placer compartir con el los gustos por la música y la imagen.

    "Don David tiene ojo, tiene buen gusto, tiene brillantes ideas, tiene talento...

    Todas estas virtudes nos las vas enseñando cada día en tus fotos y retoques, como una novela, por entregas, a cual mejor.

    Aún estamos en pañales en esto de la fotografía, pero da gusto ver la evolución y la imaginación inagotable que día a día nos regalas.

    En fin, que sólo puedo decir una cosa más: Wild nights and hot crazy days!!"

    "Decir que este chico es un artista es algo fácil, yo quiero ir más allá, el encanto que irradia el prisma a través del que mira las realidades y las transforma en magia como un alquimista, como un chaman de la imagen que todo lo llena de luz y belleza con unos toquecillos de sus claves secretas. Encantador, profesional y gran persona...ojalá se pudiera tergiversar el mundo a través de su mirada que todo lo cambia a un estado más bello.
    En su cabecita alberga miles de oportunidades para el mundo existente, iniciando una pequeña revolución cada vez que transforma las imágenes en obras maestras.
    Como ya he dicho otras veces, me considero afortunada de conocer su trabajo, porque es todo un lujo.
    Un besoteeeee ;)"
